Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 1, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS I VOL LXIM Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY OCTOBER 1 1957 This Paper Consists of Two One No 301 Order Check of Teamsters Delegates Broad Family Life Policy Is Outlined by Church Council NEW YORK broad family life policy approving re marriage of widows and advocating full equality for wives Tuesday was set forth by an official of the National Council of Churches leading voice of Protestantism in the United States The policy was outlined by the Rev William Genne executive director of the councils family life department It wasoffered as guidance to the 37 million members of 30 Protestant and Eastern Orthodox churches represented by the council Genne said the council wanted to family life matters for Protestants because Pope Pius XII said Monday Catholic women should subordinate themselves to their husbands and earlier had advised widows not to remarry Various Protestant denominations are not in complete agree ment on family matters Genne said but there is nearunanimity on these points The individual is responsibU for acting in accordance with his own conscience Widowhood is not necessarily a higher spiritual state nor any more desirable than remarriage The general feeling is that marriage should be a team ar rangement with neither partner holding a necessarily upper hand Legislators Are Polled on Money Bills DES MOINES Gov Hcrsch el Loveless said Tuesday he is asking the 158 members of the Legislature by letter for their re actions to a series of proposals he made for capital improve ments appropriations and a tax program which might be taken up in a special session The proposals were the same as those rejected by a grouo of Governor matter last week General Feeling The letter said If there is a general feeling that none of the suggested reve nue sources is acceptable I can see no point in incurring the ad ditional expense of a special ses sion The letter also outlined three other subjects which might be taken up in any special session One would be to provide addi tional appropriations for the State Board of Social Welfare The sec ond would be to remove the 2Vz per cent maximum interest rate which could be paid on bonds to finance bonuses for Iowa Korean War veterans The third would be enacting a revenue bond plan of financing new buildings at the state educational institutions Cost of Session The Governor told the legisla tors he was sure they realized a special session would cost from to and that he was sure none of us would want to be involved in this expenditure unless positive results in the form of capital appropriations and a mutually satisfactory tax pro gram can be enacted I favor a special session if there is some indication that the members of the General As sembly

war more difficult to find The plan was assailed from both the extreme right and the extreme left The right felt the law would open the way for even tual Algerian independence The left maintained the only way to peace was through direct talks would produce the amount of rev enue required to meet additional appropriations Drivers Helper Arrested in Death of lowan W Earl T Steward charged at Elko

Teamsters Union is three to one against the selection of James R Hoffa as their new international president at the forthcoming election in Miami to succeed the retiring Dave Beck This figure was obtained in a spot check of the 1400000 members of the union by the American Institute of Public Opinion in 27 cities from coast to coast Personal Profit The overwhelming opposition sentiment of the members was that Hoffa had personally prof ited at the expense of the mem bers themselves that he had brought discredit to the union by his actions and that in the final analysis he just is not the kind of man they want to head their international There was a minority opinion however that Jimmy is an all right guy and would like to see him elected to the presi dency of their national organi zation In the opinion of this small group Hoffa is a good worker who is interested in the welfare of the teamsters a man they believe could ably handle the administration of the huge trucking union No
